Born April 20, 1943 in Summit, NJ, Gregory grew up in Chatham, NJ, and lived in Madison, NJ, and New Vernon, NJ, before settling in Alexandria Township, NJ in 2017. He graduated Chatham High School. Gregory served in the US Army and the Army National Guard, where he served during the Newark riots. He obtained his real estate license and in 1972 became broker of record for his business, Gregory J. Clark Realtors, in Madison, NJ. Gregory was semi-retired. He enjoyed watching Jeopardy and singing along with songs from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Gregory loved gardening, Kubota tractors, and was often seen tinkering with the stream or walking around the pond. He often talked about his previous 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport, which was white with a red interior. Most of all, Gregory enjoyed spending time with his family.

Son of the late Franklin and Myrtle (Jackson) Clark, Gregory is survived by his daughter Meghan Casey and her husband Alexander of Alexandria Township, NJ, his grandson Reid, and is also survived by many furry grandchildren. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 33 years, Margaret “Peggy” (Toris) Clark in 2010, as well as his brother Franklin L. Clark and his sister Meredith Ash.

From: Janet Gates
I was only blessed to know this amazing soul since meeting him at his lovely home for a Thanksgiving celebration several years ago. He welcomed us graciously, offering us libations and then quickly began to tell tales and stories of his life experiences with laughter and jokes sprinkled in-between the tales. Since that first meeting my husband and I were able to gather with Greg and his precious family whenever we visited my son in New Jersey. When my son moved to New Jersey from Kentucky to attend Rutgers University and be closer to his life partner and soon to be wife, Emily Casey this family with Greg at the helm welcomed him with open arms. We vacationed together during the summer of 2020 to Seneca Lake, New York where Greg had rented an amazing lake house and regaled us all with his joy filled antics. We were last with him on May 1, 2021 celebrating the KY Derby – what a great time we all had. Greg was always so fun to be around. We experienced several campfires together where he won the “name that tune” competition and sing along each and every time with his awesome memory for song lyrics. I developed a sweet and dear connection with him during those visits, as a parent witnessing how much he cared for and loved his precious daughter, Meghan, his son-in-law, Alex Casey and his grandson, Reid. But his love and care did not end there, he extended this love to my son, Rob and they became fast friends working together on plans and projects at the farm and beyond, watching and betting on sports, playing golf, hosting family gatherings, preparing his farm for yard games and building bonfires. Greg touched my heart deeply and I will be forever grateful for how he embraced my son as a newbie to New Jersey and how he welcomed all of us into the fold of his dear family. Greg, your presence will be dearly missed. A large hole is left in so many hearts, including mine. I pray that the God of All There Is will provide peace and solace to all who love and care so very much for Mr. Gregory John Clark. Goodbye, Greg, may your soul rest in peace.
